Title: Martin Luther: A Life

Martin Luther: A Life tells the dramatic story of the renegade monk whose heroic personal struggle ignited a revolution and shook Christendom to its foundations. Through vivid anecdotes and lively historical descriptions, Martin Luther: A Life captures the turbulent times and historic events through which Luther lived as well as his profound vision of God. A fast-moving narrative, it shows how his stinging criticisms of the Christian church struck a deep and liberating chord in the German people and led to the momentous change we know as the Reformation. For all who wish to understand Luther the man, the rebel, and the visionary, James Nestingen's account also offers insight into Luther's momentous contributions to the Western world and his personal encounter with God, the Christian Scriptures, and the relentless demands of his own conscience.

James A. Nestingen is Professor of Church History Emeritus at Luther Seminary in Saint Paul, Minnesota. He is a nationally recognized Luther scholar as well as a popular speaker and lecturer. Nestingen is the author of numerous books, including The Faith We Hold and editor, with Robert Kolb, of Sources and Contexts of the Book of Concord.

Title: Selections From The Table Talk Of Martin Luther

Martin Luther (1483-1546) is a name that is synonymous with reformation. His 1517 posting of ninety-five theses on the door of All Saints church in Wittenburg changed the course of history forever. In his theses, Luther objects to the Roman Catholic Church and its practice of selling indulgences, as well as the idea that money could buy one's way to salvation. His controversial ideas inspired the Reformation and influenced the Lutheran and Protestant ideologies. Most of Luther's books were ordered to be burned, however, a copy of his "Table Talk" (originally titled "Divine Discourses") was found under the foundation of a German home in 1626. It contains a series of informal conversations recorded by Luther's students and colleagues in his home, and illustrates the reformist's firm beliefs on religious doctrine, history, academics and history, to name a few. These selections expound some of Martin Luther's most profound ideas, completely uncensored.
